On many newer cars there is a locking mechanism that prevents the shifter from being taken out of the PARK position if the brake is not depressed. This may be the problem. On vehicles that have this there is usually an override mechanism (usually some recessed button on the shift console) that can be pressed to release the shifter. It should be mentioned in the users manual. The image below shows the locking mechanism (16). I have read that there is a small cap on the shifter body you can remove and under it is a button you press to release the shifter. This will work until you can affect repairs.
check to see if your brake lights are working .if not look for blown fuse or brake light switch or bulbs their should be a override slot or procedure to release from park.release solenoid is not working.
Hi. Check first if bulbs are busted. usually brake lights are double contact bulbs. Meaning when you turn the lights on the steering wheel into park position the first contact of the bulb will light up that is why your have the tail light on at the back. Now when you hit the brakes that is when the brake light will come up. Try to switch to the lights to park position and check if you have your park light on. If nothing shows up at the back of the car then you need to replace the bulbs. One more thing is you may check also the fuse of the tail/brake light in your fuse box. Fuse might be busted also that is why you are getting this problem.
if your vehicle required brake application prior to shifting out of park your problem exists in the switch at the brake pedal, the solenoid that unlocks the shifter control a fuse or the wiring between them.
i would check yor brake light switch make sure its adjusted correctly whitch will be located behind your brake pedal remove it press the button in and out your brake lights should turn on and off if this dont happen i would try a new switch as it sounds to me like the switch is sending a constan 12 v feed to brake lights
